Hair salon giving free wigs to cancer patients all night

By Sara Story - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas hair salon is staying open all night to give out free wigs and weaves to cancer patients.

Queen Divas salon on MLK Boulevard in Tyler is hosting "Glamorous Diva" for the eighth year. Cancer patients that have lost their hair can go in and get fitted for a wig. The salon is making the wigs out of donated hair. If you don't need a wig but want to donate your hair to the cause, the salon will cut it for free. Queen Diva's owner started the event after her sister died from cancer.

"To be able to have a custom made wig makes them really happy," said owner, CC Foster. "And, that is so fulfilling to everyone."

Queen Diva's will be open until 8 Friday morning. There is no need for an appointment, just walk in.
